    11/ 12 Morewood Makulu Sizing

    I'm 5'9 and currently on a short 2010 Makulu. there were only 2 sizes back then, S & L. I love these bikes and am looking to get the new one.

    The new Makulu's have 3 sizes S, M , L

    Just wondering what size Makulu owners are riding and how tall. Im thinking maybe a Medium

    Thanks

    At your size, it's easy; do you like a tight(er) cockpit, or, a longer one. You could be on either depending on your pref. If you're digging the size you're on now, get the small. However, if you wish it were a wee bit longer, go med. These Makulu mediums seem marginally bigger than other brands mediums though. Good luck Chuckie!

    really? when you look at the geo for Reach with other Med frames like the Demo 8 it seems that the Makulu is shorter

    should "Reach" be what I am guaging this on or TT length?

    Makulu small Reach 380mm TT 580mm WB 1158
    Makulu Med Reach 405mm TT 605mm WB1183
    Demo 8 Med Reach 430mm TT 517mm WB 1191
    M9 Med Reach 412mm TT 585mm WB 1181
    Glory Med TT 605mm WB 1156

    From experience(about a week ago), a 2011/2012 demo feels like a med Makulu. I agree with what you're reading, however, getting on one is key. Are there people, or shops in your area that may let you straddle a bike?
